Arguments To Begin Monday In Trial For Jamestown Man Charged With Murder

MAYVILLE – Arguments in the murder trial for a Jamestown man will begin Monday morning at 9:30 a.m. in Chautauqua County Court. 

A court clerk told WNY News Now Friday afternoon that the 12-member jury was selected for the case against 22-year-old Tavion Turner after more than a week of questioning from the prosecution and Turner’s attorney Avery Olson.

Turner was indicted in 2019 on two counts of second-degree murder for his alleged role in the 2017 stabbing death of Dyllan Ownbey. Turner faces two counts because he is alleged to have killed Ownbey during a felony.

Authorities haven’t provided specifics to date on the alleged felony.

Turner remains in Chautauqua County Jail on $1 million bail.

The Erie County District Attorney’s Office will be prosecuting the case.

WNY News Now will be in attendance for opening arguments from both sides, along with jury instruction from Judge David W. Foley, Monday.
